The Changing Face of Innovation
April 15th, 2008

‘Innovation Nation’ (March 2008) is White Paper of the department of Innovation, Universities & Skills of the British government to create an Innovation Nation as a challenge for business, public services, third sector organisations, towns and cities, universities and colleges.

The message of this whitepaper is that innovation will be the key to some of the biggest challenges facing our society, like global warming and sustainable development. Government can foster innovation but only people can create an Innovation Nation.

Innovation is increasingly an international endeavour. Businesses are internationalising their R&D, supply chains and customer bases and adopting “open innovation” models. Like the ideas that they create and use, the people who drive innovation are also increasingly mobile, as is the finance that support innovators.
